My students need an iPad for one of our math centers to use as a group for remediation tool.
"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." Albert Einstein, and as their teacher, I must find new meaningful ways to keep my student engaged and foster a willingness and enthusiasm to learn math.
I have two 5th grade math, science and social studies classes.
Both classes consisting of a total of 41 students. The majority of my students are Hispanic, with a minority of the students being African American. It is a lower social economic population. My students are eager to learn and love to move around. There favorite part of math class is when we do our math centers. These centers are done daily to reinforce math skills they have not yet mastered or are having difficulty understanding. Many of my students still struggle with very basic math skills. The pressure is on for both the student and teacher to perform well on the standardized test given later in the year and I am looking for modern ways to help them learn he subject and increase their scores.
With your help and donation I would like to buy an iPad so that my students will have an interactive center where they can work together as a group reinforcing much needed math skills. This will keep them both interested and engaged in learning. Most of our centers consist of teacher made activities that I have created. The iPad would allow me to more easily and readily customize the center to each groups need.
I am trying to make a difference and teach a generation that has grown up with many forms of electronic devices and games.
My hope is that with your help we will be able to ignite students interest to learn math. My plan is to reach out to those students who are accustomed to learning and communicating using today's technology to help them improve. This year my 5th grade class will be taking our State's standardized math test which we are vigorously preparing to take in March.
